Another Scandinavian language joins our growing range of iOS grammar drill apps with the release of Danish Verb Blitz for iOS this week.
With well over 100 verbs to learn, review and drill, it’s a great way to hone your language skills. The featured verbs are also amongst the commonest words in the language. That makes the app is a great tool for expanding your vocabulary, too.
The core of the app is its verb reference engine, with a searchable list of verbs with full conjugations. But the app tackles both meaning and conjugation, with the familiar set of games:
Infinitive quiz / grid quiz
Gapfill is one of our favourites, as it really tests your knowledge of written forms – master those spellings!
As well as the activities, there’s a handy tracking system. Using a simple score tracker through the games, you can check at any point which verbs you’ve found trickiest.
Do you get befuddled by numbers in Hebrew? Find learning number words boring? We know we do, although there’s no escaping the fact that learning numbers is an essential part of learning a foreign language.
Hebrew Number Whizz is the latest addition to GeoGlot’s apps for Android, and acts as a learning tool and a reference guide to make that chore easier. Using this free app, you can master Hebrew numbers with clear guides and interactive activities.
Units, tens, hundreds, thousands and millions – the sky’s the limit with a vast range of numbers covered.
Number Writer: type in any number up to 999,999,999 and Hebrew Number Whizz will write it out for you in words – with or without vowel points, or even transliterated into Latin characters
Multichoice: test yourself by matching a particular range of numerals and number words
Arithmetic Quiz: take your number mastery to the next level with these tricky addition and subtraction problems presented as words
Random Generator: enlist your friends’ help by asking them to tap a number, and asking you to read it out (transliteration provided!)
Not only that, but Hebrew Number Whizz supports learners at any level through a set of beginner-friendly settings. You can choose to include vowel points in the games, or even put the app into transliteration mode, presenting the numbers through Latin characters.
Whatever your level, Hebrew Number Whizz is a great way to make learning numbers – that chore of language learning – a lot more interesting.
